Geography

Acciaroli is a port on the Cilento coast on the Tyrrhenian Sea. The largest township in its comune, followed by the hamlet of Pioppi, it is six kilometers from Pollica, 20 from Santa Maria di Castellabate, 17 from Velia, 30 from Agropoli, and 70 from Salerno.

Tourism

The town is a part of "Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park", whose natural environment is made up of the "maquis shrubland" typical of the Mediterranean region.

It is a major tourist destination, especially during summer, because it has grown famous nationally for of its water quality, having earned the "Blue Flag beach" title and the "Five Sails" of Legambiente, an Italian environmentalist association, for several years.

Culture

After World War II, Ernest Hemingway chose Acciaroli as a place to stay during trips to Italy.

Centenarians

Recently, scientists have begun to study the town because of its unusually high number of centenarians, some 300, with 20 percent of those reaching the age of 110. This longevity occurs despite the fact that many of the elderly in Acciaroli smoke or are overweight.

The centenarians of Acciaroli are also known to have very low rates of heart disease and of Alzheimer’s disease.
